So day 2 went ok - a little more of the same with the chatty girls and the same with day 3. Luckily I really like my co-teacher - she is awesome. Weird side note- she went to school with my BFF in Rochester, MN, small world! Yes BMB - we will discuss it this weekend (see if you can guess who it is???)! So Chatty Cathy loves VBS and all the praise songs. I must admit it brings back tons of memories for me from when I went to VBS as a kid. Chatty Cathy hums and sings them every afternoon and evening - it is such a delightful sound - I am glad she loves the Lord! I must admit it is renewing my relationship with the Lord as well!
I was talking to my co-teacher today about how tired we were and that I was in fact hosting Bunco tonight. She asked if it included wine - I said yes - as if there was any other way to host Bunco! Our group was small tonight - 2 no shows (rude I tell ya!) and one last minute cancellation due to work ... but it was fun with the small group. Good stories and wine! Mr. ESPN helped out a lot (getting stuff ready) and my fav UT (Tenn - go Big Orange) gal came early for an early glass of wine and a chat with my girls. She is one of my BFF's and loves my girls ( and my girls love her too - she is the best!).
Politics - so my VBS kids were discussing politics today and why McCain didn't win - some of the boys thought it had to do with him having a woman as a VP candidate .. mind you the boys in my class tend to be very sexist. I was having a hard time keeping my mouth shut as I am very vocal when it comes to politics and sexism!
Interesting conversation in the car today regarding politics - Chatty Cathy hears something on the radio about Obama. She says "I really like Obama". Well those of you who know me know I am extremely conservative and didn't vote for O so I was mortified by this statement. I tried to explain to Chatty how it is good to respect the president but that daddy and mommy didn't agree with his viewpoints (I didn't mention that her grandpa - my FIL - had an O sign in his yard during the election - we can't all be right can we???) but it was still important to respect our officials. It was hard but I tried to be PC. My good friend A (UT Gal) at Bunco laughed as I told her the story - she and her husband are very conservative and sometimes give me a hard time about being ultra conservative ... Also I got an Obama Agenda Survey from the RNC today (yes I am a proud member of the RNC). It was total propaganda for the RNC but I filled it out and am mailing it back because I think it is important to show that we don't all agree with the president's agenda. OK there I said it so we all know where I stand. I am a conservative Republican who supports the military (i.e. my brother) and minimal government!
SO Bon Jovi is on the tv now - You Can't Go Home - love this song - reminds me of my hometown of DAB, FL .... plus he is hot! No one better to sing about your hometown except maybe Rob Thomas (who I love and grew up in O town FL) or Kenny Chesney who is a good TN boy!
